Fungal Infections - Foot
Symptoms of athlete's foot
Athlete's foot is an annoying disease, which in most cases is transmitted from person to person. In this form of fungus, the spaces between the toes are particularly affected. At first, athlete's foot manifests itself only by an annoying itch between the toes. Subsequently, the skin reddens. In the final stage, large skin scales form and fall off easily. This makes a fungal infection visible to the eye. The formation of scales increases within days. Whitish skin plates are often formed on the foot.
If the athlete's foot is not treated with appropriate creams, the course can become chronic. Furthermore, deep cracks often form in the skin, causing pain with every movement. Athlete's foot sufferers also complain of weeping spots and small blisters that burst open.
Pathogens can penetrate through the burst blisters and cause severe skin inflammation. Rapid treatment is therefore advisable. You will find a large selection of high-quality remedies against athlete's foot in our athlete´s foot online store.
The correct treatment of athlete's foot
The athlete's foot treatment is simple and can be done completely from home. But it should start as early as possible and be carried out consistently. If left untreated, athlete's foot becomes chronic.
Against athlete's foot, fungicidal agents (antifungals) help. There are different agents that work differently. Some kill the fungi that are present (fungicidal effect) and others inhibit the fungi from multiplying (fungistatic effect). Your health care provider can help you choose the right cream.
There are several risk factors that promote fungal infection. Most infections are triggered by contact with infectious skin flakes. People who suffer from athlete's foot shed infectious skin flakes. When other people come in contact with these dander, the risk of infection is very high. This often happens in places where we walk barefoot:
- Swimming pools
- Hotel rooms
- Public showers
Wrong footwear also favors an athlete's foot infection. Athlete's foot germs can multiply very easily in tight shoes. Our feet sweat more in tight shoes and this allows the bacteria to multiply. Furthermore, the genetic makeup can ensure that athlete's foot infections occur more frequently. In some families athlete's foot infections occur more frequently. Even if the family members no longer live together.
Other diseases can also trigger athlete's foot infections. These include, for example, circulatory disorders.
